While visiting the Steinbeck Center last week I saw this in the art gallery:


It is part of a collection for the exhibition From This Stone and Anvil: Arthurian Legend Exposed and Abstracted

Okay, so this may not look like much until you see what it is made of.


Recognize it?

Twist-ties.  You know the ones you get on bread packets.


Artist: J.R. Uretsky, who by chance has a blog which I found while google searching for other works of art she may have done.

Information about the exhibition: National Steinbeck Center

Wow. For some reason I have some kind of affinity with this twist-ties art. Not sure why,maybe just because I love bread ?;)
